NBC’s The Grinch Musical aired last night, after a month of memes and threats of legal action regarding the casting of Glee alum Matthew Morrison, who recently revealed that his Grinch was partially inspired by Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker.

The reviews are mixed: Twitter had thoughts about Morrison’s farting, vaguely sexual Grinch. But to get a true sense of The Grinch Musical‘s cultural impact, you’ve got to check in with TikTok.

While some people were definitely into the Morrison Grinch, others were more cutting in their assessment. Reviews ranged from “topical cruise ship acting” to “I don’t feel safe.”
